The new NERD of the MONTH is Natalie Victoria! She is an actress, Model and Social Medial Consultant! She is also the star of DeadHeads and Chemical peel. She is one of the nicest down to earth people.
IloveSEXYnerds: Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Natalie Victoria: I’m an actress and a writer.
IloveSEXYnerds: Tell us about the cult classic movie DEADHEADS.
Natalie Victoria: Two inexplicably coherent zombies awake amidst a zombie attack, and decide to take a road trip to find the one’s lost love “Ellie” who I play. Ellie is Mike’s long lost love. He sets out to find once he wakes up as a zombie from a 3-year sleep. Ellie is this sweet girl-next-door who is slightly clumsy and awkward in her own way. Okay, she is kind of a big clutz, but very lovable. I loved it! She’s a slow reveal until the very end of the film, which allows audiences to discover who she is along the way.
Along the way, the two zombies are unaware they are being chased by the agents of a ruthless company with its own agenda and the comedy and adventure unfolds from there…I don’t want to give it away, but it’s got adventure, comedy, and romance all rolled into one movie with a ton of pop culture references. If you loved films from the 80s like Goonies and Back to the Future, you will love DEADHEADS.
Oh and I also play the zombie bride – which was devilishly fun to play as well… I mean really, what actress wouldn’t love ripping a guy’s chest open, pulling his heart out, and sinking her teeth into the flesh of his still beating heart?
IloveSEXYnerds: Do you have any new projects coming up?
Natalie Victoria: 1. ABSTRACTION (action/crime/thriller) CoStar Role, Releasing January 27, 2015 via Breaking Glass Pictures.
2. LAST SHIFT (thriller/horror) CoStar Role, Releasing late 2015.
3. THE LOOKOUT (crime/drama) Starring Role, currently in post-production and hitting film festivals in late 2015.
I am also looking for great projects and interesting directors to work with, so I am hoping to find some new surprises this year out there and really push myself as an artist. Currently though, I have two web series I am working on, I am developing two short films, a feature, and finishing two other scripts – so it’s going to be an exciting year and I can’t wait!

IloveSEXYnerds: What would you be doing if you weren’t a model/actress?
Natalie Victoria: I am definitely first and foremost, an actress. And although I can take a pretty picture or two from time to time, I am certainly by no means a professional model. If I weren’t acting, I would be donating my time to help others in need.
IloveSEXYnerds: Do you have a mini bio about yourself?
Natalie Victoria: Sure! It’s on IMDB here, http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2210947/
IloveSEXYnerds: What is the craziest story you could tell us?
Natalie Victoria: I went to a house party for a birthday, and several hours later woke up at the bottom of a steep staircase in a pool of my own blood with my head cracked open…fast forward to ambulance then hospital, needles in my head to several staples later and I was fixed and home safely. I haven’t been to a house birthday party since. Nothing surprises me anymore. Everyone is crazy. I live in LA.
IloveSEXYnerds: Do people recognize you when you go to cons?
Natalie Victoria: For me personally, I do not go to cons. I used to go to comic-con years ago, but I stopped going once it became over-commercialized. It’s just not my scene anymore. That said, I don’t feel it makes or breaks your “nerd status” to attend/not attend. Maybe I will go back in a year or so. Never say never, right?
IloveSEXYnerds: Tell us about your website?
Natalie Victoria: My website is currently under construction –but you can visit my IMDB for all the latest on my films and acting projects, http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2210947/
IloveSEXYnerds: Who would win in a fight Darth Vader or Gandolf?
Natalie Victoria: Gandolf! He defeated a Belrog demon who is supernatural in nature and can not be defeated by a mere human seeing as he has the ability to shroud himself in fire, darkness, and shadow. So yea, I would have to say the wizard. Gandolf says, “YOU SHALL NOT PASS!” and you won’t…!
IloveSEXYnerds: What inspires you when you choose characters?
Natalie Victoria: Anything that scares me. When I first started acting, I was always cast as the love interest or sweet girl next door – as my craft matured, I now find myself drawn to more complex characters who are multi-layered in both their emotions and motives. You are not sure if they are good or bad or somewhere in between. I look for strong but vulnerable roles – that are layered and real and raw.
IloveSEXYnerds: Marvel vs DC vs Anime?
Natalie Victoria: Definitely DC – They have all the dark & complicated characters. And let’s face it, they have Batman. HOT!
IloveSEXYnerds: What was your childhood like growing up?
Natalie Victoria: Imaginative, creative, and adventurous.
IloveSEXYnerds: Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Natalie Victoria: Acting, writing, and producing a myriad of projects both for amazing directors and under my own production company, and making a bigger difference in this world by helping others in need and those who are hurting.
IloveSEXYnerds: What do you do to inspire yourself?
Natalie Victoria: I usually take a long walk or hike – inspiration comes easy when you clear your head from the noise of day-to-day nonsense and incessant ringing of technology.
IloveSEXYnerds: What do you like to do for fun?
Natalie Victoria: Something unexpected.
IloveSEXYnerds: What kind of music do you like?
Natalie Victoria: All types, I am an artist! Vintage music from the 20s, 30s, 40s – pop, rock and roll, classical, jazz, alternative, electronic, oldies, and more. I like to immerse myself in all types of tunes depending on my mood or focus.
IloveSEXYnerds: What kind of nerd are you?
Natalie Victoria: I didn’t realize there were categories.
IloveSEXYnerds: Is there anything you are promoting right now?
Natalie Victoria: My latest film “ABSTRACTION” (action/crime/thriller) CoStar Role, Releasing January 27, 2015 via Breaking Glass Pictures. Be sure to check it out on VOD/DVOD and select theatres!
IloveSEXYnerds: What is the nerdiest thing you have done?
Natalie Victoria: I don’t see myself in terms of labels like that so I can’t say anything I have ever done is “nerdy”. For me, I just happen to like and know and collect a lot of things from what is considered a “nerd culture”… doesn’t mean I am a nerd. Just an appreciator of great stories and characters. So although, I hate being defined by labels, I’ll be your honorary “nerd” for this month. ;-)
IloveSEXYnerds: Do people ever recognize you when you go out?
I live in Los Angeles so working actors, celebrities, artists, and the like – we all see each other everyday and it’s not a big deal. But sure, every once in a great while you have someone come up to you at an event and say they know you from a film you have done and get excited. That’s always nice, to be recognized for your work as an actress and artist – I don’t mind that at all. ;-)
IloveSEXYnerds: What is the hottest costume you have ever worn?
For Halloween? Um, I don’t know if it’s the “hottest” but my favorite Halloween costume I ever did was a year ago for Game Of Thrones – I was Princess Daenerys. As far as professional costumes go, most of my wardrobe for films are pretty tame since I play characters based in reality vs. something like scifi. Although, I would love to shoot a sci-fi film like ALIENS with a great script one day!
IloveSEXYnerds: Favorite food?
I don’t eat. I am an actress.

IloveSEXYnerds: Favorite Video Games?
I love all the HALO Games, Assassins Creed, and Destiny – but I haven’t been able to play video games too often due to my workload and shooting schedules. I just don’t have the time anymore, which is sad because video games are so much fun!
